Erika @ MCM Mama Runs hosts Tuesdays on the Run with April @ Run the great wide somewhere and Patty @ My no-guilt life! Today I’m going to share with you some of the places I run. Again. And again. And again. . . . Winter is a little limiting in these parts.
SUNY Albany running series. Free supported runs during the winter I’m so grateful for – even if running there is boring! Usually there’s snow. So there aren’t a lot of places to run that are cleared in the winter. Plus there’s food & water (often frozen) on the course.
I don’t get up to Saratoga too often to run, since it’s 30 minutes away. Which is a shame – it’s a nice place to run! Not that you can tell from this race photo.
Local bike path along the Erie Canal. I spend way too much time running here: the attraction is it’s mostly flat & you don’t have to worry about cars. It’s not really all that scenic. Better than running in my neighborhood, though – but I don’t have to drive anywhere when I run in my neighborhood, so I run there are lot.
Not to mention I walk the dogs in my neighborhood almost every day
A church on one of my regular running routes near my neighborhood.
A local park I run at/through a lot. It’s very pretty & close to home.
Although short, this is one of my favorite local running paths. Being by the water is always soothing to me.
Another favorite running path. I don’t get down here as often as I’d like. During the winter there’s snow that isn’t cleared. During the summer I run with my running group & we usually only run here once or twice during the summer.
It’s near downtown Albany & kind of creepy during the week, which is why I don’t run there during the week, but on the weekend there are plenty of runners.
There’s a nice natural area called the Pinebush, but it’s supposed to be full of ticks so I’ve never run there. It’s also a little further away. One of my dogs in in heart failure & on diuretics, so I’m a little limited in how long I can be away from home. Lucky for him I no longer work.
Are you limited in where you can run where you live, or do you have lots of trails (in which case I hate you)? Most of our trails are just too far away for me to go to on a regular basis.
